Economic stimulus through renewables

Delivering economic stimulus through renewables

07 Oct 2021


In response to the profound economic impacts of COVID-19, WWF-Australia proposes a renewable stimulus which would drive new employment growth, provide greater diversitywithin the broader economy, accelerate climate action and put Australia on the pathway to becoming a renewable export powerhouse.


Recent polling by WWF shows that nationally, when asked to choose between two positions, 69% of respondents said Australia’s potential to be an economic superpower of the postcarbon world was more aligned with their thinking, than a critique of renewables which argued they were not a good solution for the future. This holds up across all states and even across party lines. For example, in Queensland this rises to 72%. Among coalition voters this figure is 61%. Most people want us to go for renewable-powered growth.
